===Topics and Shared Task Description===

The Workshop on Computational Personality Recognition (Shared
Task) invites contributions from researchers or teams working in:
-Data Mining, -Computational Psychology, -Natural Language
Processing, -Social Network Analysis, -Sentiment Analysis,
-Deception Detection, -Information Extraction, -Human-Computer
Interaction, -Authorship Attribution and any other related area.

Organizers will provide two gold standard labelled datasets:

 1) Raw Text and Personality: a large dataset of essays labelled
    with personality, produced by Pennebaker et Al 2001 and used
    by Mairesse et al. 2007.

 2) Social Network Data and Personality: Facebook status updates,
    and Facebook network properties (including network size,
    betweenness centrality, density and transitivity) labelled
    with personality, produced by Stillwell & Kosinski, 2013.

Contributors are required to:

 - use at least one of the datasets provided by the organizers
   for their experiments (contributors can add annotation levels
   for cross comparisons using any type of external resource);
 - provide the files used for the experiments;
 - submit a short paper (max. 4 pages, including references)
   reporting all the information about features, resources and
   techniques used in the experiments, and discussing results.

Organizers warmly invite contributors working in Personality
Recognition to test their systems on the datasets released. Other
researchers or teams that wish to use the datasets for the tasks
listed above are more than welcome. The Programme committee will
evaluate and select the papers for publication on the basis of
clarity, correctness, meaningful comparison, significance,
soundness and replicability. Negative results will be considered
as important as positive results. Selected papers will be
published in the workshop proceedings and will be presented as
posters at the workshop. All papers must follow AAAI formatting
guidelines (http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php)
and must be sent to fabio.celli_(at)_live.it no later than March 8th,
2013. The website of the workshop is online at
http://mypersonality.org/wiki/doku.php?id=wcpr13 . The Workshop
will take place in a half day on July 11th, 2013 and will include
one presentation talk, a poster session and a panel discussion,
open to contributors, organizers and attendees.
